The Assignment – Understand?Oct 18, 2021
The Assignment trend has been HUGE! When you or someone else understands the assignment, you went for it and achieved big. The “assignment” you understood can be anything from tongue-in-cheek poking fun at yourself or a humblebrag.
Use it for Your Business
The trend has pretty much slipped into pop culture as a slang term, so if you wanna sound cool use it in your captions or graphics.
My favorite way to use it is with the trending sound from Tay Money.
Here are some fun examples:
- Promote a product: When their customers asked for Christmas-themed sprinkles, they really understood the assignment!
- Poke fun at yourself: Taking feedback from her grade-school report card, this podcaster understood the assignment.
- Make an announcement: This author understood the assignment the day before book launch.
- Humblebrag on your partner: The husband of a DIYer understood the assignment.
Just because it's new doesn't mean it's worth your time: Is understanding the assignment worth your time?
MAYBE: I give it 3 out of 5 thumbs up.
Posting a fun reel or using it in copy isn’t going to make a huge difference but it’s a fun and creative way to engage with your audience.
